The search for an escaped sex offender from 2016 is over. According to the El Paso County Sheriff’s office, Benjamin Caballero was captured by Taylor County law enforcement Wednesday, July 26th.
Caballero left the facility at 1650 Horizon Boulevard, just south of Horizon and across the street from Sparks, on July 7th, 2016.
He has a history of Indecency With a Child/Exposure out of Nolan County, Texas. Officials say his duty to register as a sex offender expired in 2008 but is currently “Board Ordered” by TDCJ Parole to register as a sex offender.
When he escaped in 2016, his last known location was at the intersection of Birch and Yandell El Paso, where he cut off his ankle monitor.
Caballero was arrested and booked into the Taylor County Jail in Abilene Wednesday night.
